Launching careers for Canadian Armed Forces members.

The Career Edge Internship Program for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) aims to provide current and former members of the military with meaningful, permanent employment relevant to their field of study, career interests, and experience level. This program supports:

Veterans
including those with a self-declared disability – with three of more years of service and honourably discharged

Members of the Regular Forces
transitioning to civilian life

Primary Reservists
with a desire to continue to train and serve at their local reserve unit without relocating to launch their civilian careers
